PS4 console sales top the US charts, but Xbox One has comparable numbers

Sony is narrowly leading next-generation consoles sales in the US, as its PS4 hardware once again edged out the Xbox One last month.

PS4 sold approximately 287,000 units in the States in February, a number calculated by the fact that Xbox One unit sales were only 10% behind its chief rival.

Microsoft confirmed that 258,000 of its all-in-one console sold in the US, according to the NPD Group. It said Xbox One sales are on "a record-breaking pace."

Because Microsoft is selling its Kinect-included system at a premium price, this actually puts the company ahead when counting up all of the dollars.

Prepare for Titanfall

PS4 has been leading Xbox One worldwide since the two systems launched in November, but all of that could change this month.

The highly anticipated Titanfall US released date was on Tuesday, while Australia received the game yesterday. Its staggered launch ends in the UK later today.

This third-person shooter has the former Call of Duty creators behind it, so its expected to move more Xbox One systems than other other game released in the first half of 2014.

That should make the Xbox One vs PS4 sales in March a much more interesting back-and-forth deathmatch.
